PATTERNS!!!


     Well, it's been too long since I posted on my blog.  I was all set last March to post all these great pictures and one of my flash drives malfunctioned.  It had a LOT of my pictures from the previous year and from places I've visited. 
     This year has been a lot of fun, but not without it's ups and downs.  I still have to battle the local deer in the neighborhood.  I use deterrents to keep them from eating the daylilies.  I've probably lost about 5 to 7 buds, which is a miracle given the amount of daylilies I grow.  My hybridizing focus has been patterns.  More specifically tetraploid pattern breeding.  Here are some of the daylilies I am growing and breeding with.  The patterned daylilies at the top of the page are Dan Trimmer's Waves of Joy. One of my favorite patterned daylilies.
The daylily above is a seedling of mine out of Get Jiggy. 
The daylily above is Ripples and Reflections from Mort Morss.
The daylily above is Ted Petit's, So Many Ripples.
The daylily above is Ted Petit's Cobalt Rings.
This daylily above is a seedling from Dan Robarts.
The daylily above Di Decaire's Four Beasts In One.  Another favorite.
This daylily above is a seedling of mine out of the daylily Steve Moldovan.
The daylily pictured above is Pat Stamile's Get Jiggy.
The daylily above is Ted Petit's Zoe Allegra.
The daylily pictured above is a seedling of mine out of Jerry Hyatt.
The daylily pictured above is a seedling of mine out of Desire of Nations.  I hope you enjoyed this weeks segment.  I will try to post more when things slow down this winter.  Thanks for checking in.

  1. Hi Paul,

    I really like the first picture that you posted which is of your seedling. I really like patterns, but I haven't worked with them very much. I do have FOUR BEASTS IN ONE. I've made seedlings with it using TET. WILD DREAMS as a parent.

    I also like the view of your house and your front yard. I can see that you have no need of a lawn mower.

    1. Thanks Bill. Can't wait to see what you get from Di Decaire's Four Beasts In One. It's an excellent parent. And yes, my lawn mowing only takes 5 minutes. More time for the daylilies! Hope all is well with you and Diana.

  3. Paul I'm impressed with your patterned seedling and the Desire of Nation's kid. Could you send me an original file of the FBIO photo? I used the other photo you sent me of it at the auction in Asheville. Just like your photos a lot.
